This course or study embraces Hook-Keeping, Commerciil Arithmetic. Business Correspondence, and Penmanship. Drilli will also be Riven in Commercial Law and Civil Govern ment It is intended to make this department one of eminent utility. The time has come when our girls as well as our boys should have a practical business education. Many lucrative and hon- orable positions are open to women qualified to All them; besides, every housekeeper should know how to keep a comet account of her income and expenses. A successful business tuan, referring to this "new departure," writes us, "I am glad to see you have a commercial depart- ment. Our women know very little about the everyday busi- ness affairs of life. Many graduates can work out difficult problems, and read Latin and French ; but how many can make out a post-office money order, or tell the difference betweeni draft and a check? You are on the right line : teach your girli business." MUSIC DEPARTMENT. The instruction in this department aims at the highest style of culture in classical music. The rule is to admit no models o! doubtful merit. Our object is to give complete courses of musical education, in singing, piano-forte and organ playing, to those who have the requisite gifts and are prepared to submit to the necessary discipline. The time required by each student to complete a full course in any branch of music, and to obtain i diploma, will be determined by her previous attainments, and by the rate of her progress as dependent on her talent and industry. INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. The subjects taught are the following : 1. Theory of Music— embracing harmony, thorough-baa (obligatory for all organ students), counterpoint, fugue, compost tion, instrumentation, and history of music. The instruction « given partly in lectures, partly in classes, and partly In in* vidual lessons. 2. nA5o.ronTF-.Thl8 includes elementary and technical exercises, ensemble playing (duos, trios, quartets), and train! m in artist.c performance, as respects style, expression, and artistic conception. Especial attention is pa(d to position, touch fln K er- | DK , etc. Beginners are not placed under inexperienced teachers, but take lessons of the best Instructors For the piano-forte, the works of Bach. Handel, Scarlatti, Clementl Mozart, Cramer. Beethoven. Chopin, Weber, Oottschalk Men- delssohn, Schumann, and Liszt form the foundation The text books used are Kobler's Method, N. E. Conservatory Method, Czerny s Studies In Velocity, Cramer's Studies, and Palmer's Theory. There will be periodical examinations of every stu dent; and her advancement will be determined by her prod ciSDcy, as thus tested. 3. Organ. -The course includes everything necessary to give the pupil a mastery of the organ in church, concert, or parlor In church music, voluntaries, preludes, interludes, etc the course is thorough. The productions of Rinck, Hesse Sudds and others are used. Applicants for instruction on the organ should have some previous knowledge of piano-forte playing VOCAL MUSIC. 1. Class SiN«ixo.-ln this, there will be a two years' course free to all pupils. The work of the first year consists of daily drills on rudiments, transposition, Intervals, major and minor scales, glees, and light choruses. Palmer's Choral Union is used as a text-book. Second year's work will be a review of Ru- diments and choruses in Choral Union, besides hymnology and grand chorus work. Lessons daily. Instruction is also given in breathing, sight reading, harmony, history of music, etc. 2. Voice Ccxttjbi.— Thto branch will be in the charge of a teacher whose ability as a vocalist is unsurpassed. Careful at- tention is paid to correct breathing, distinct articulation, and proper expression. Instead of loud, forced tones, beauty and purity of voice are secured. The Old Italian method is taught. The vocalises and methods of Marches!, Concone, Vaccaj, and Emerson are used, together with arias from the best operas, and souks by Schumann, Mendelssohn, Pinsuti, Schubert, and others. Applicants for instruction in voice culture should' possess a good TOice, a healthy constitution, and an acquaintance with the rudi- ments of music. ART DEPARTMENT. This department is directed by an accomplished artinr, t^ has devoted years to the study or art in its various branches, and who seeks to cultivate in the pupil a love or the study, as wellaj to impart technical knowledge. The course includes tho following Drawing, light and shade. still life, crayon, pastel, landscape, marine, china decoration, nspOMMff, and portraiture in oil and crayon. Tho Art Hall is commodious, well lighted, and admirably adapted to its uses. Remarks on Course of Study. OPTIONAL STUDIES. All optional studies, such as vocal and instrumental music, drawing, painting, French, Gorman, Spanish, and Qteek, ■ taught so as to interfere as littlo as possible with the regular studies of the pupils. No pupil having commenced an optional study can discontinue it without the permission of the Faculty, given at the request of the parent or guardian. Pupils an required to study Latin in order to graduate; but those who decline to take Latin may, by completing the full English course, receive a diploma as graduate in Science. SPECIAL STUDIES. Pupils who are deficient in certain branches often desire to graduate. These may pursue such special studies as willenable them to take a regular class standing as soon as possible. Young ladies who do not intend to graduate may wish to com- plete special studies, or to enjoy the advantages of Music aid Art. Such will be received, and, on finishing these subjects, may reoeive a certificate of proficiency. Many ladies, who intend teaching, or who have already taught, desire a thorough knowledge of certain branches, at well as needed instruction in Methods and School Management Courses of instruction will be given to meet the respective wart of each. All special pupils boarding in the college must be subject to all the regulations affecting boarding pupils. LaGHmge Mmtaie < 23 MODERN LANGUAGES. German, Preach, and .Spanish are taught by competent Wractore. About ono-half the Western Continent speTk * h Span.su language. Since the United States is now in verTclot religious and commercial relations with Mexico, a knowledge Z Spanish is a desideratum. Wo have incorporated the las' named study in our course and it will be taught by one who Z made this language a specialty. uaa IMPORTANT FEATURES. Special attention is given to letter-writing, punctuation, pen- manship, business forms, orthography, phonics, and English composition Our vocal music is not mere practice for com- mencement, but daily lessons in sight-reading, etc., are given by a teacher of acknowledged ability. Members of the advanced classes will have frequent reviews in all the elemen tary branches, besides daily drills in orthography. CHARACTER OP INSTRUCTION. The teachers are all liberally educated, enthusiastic, and expe- rienced. Their vacations are not spent in mere idle recreation but in studying matter and methods, thereby better preparing themselves Tor their special work. The teaching is thorough radical; bold to adopt all modern books and methods that are approved, equally bold to hold fast to the old that have been found good. The course of instruction is rtiimrlirttoo, not dig- it the lower elementary branches when advancing to the higher, but incorporating; and studying them throughout the entire course. ROUTINE OF STUDY AND RECITATION. Pupils are rarely confined more than an hour at a time in study and recitation. Short, stilted intervals for recreation and physical training are incorporated in the schedule of daily duty. My gymnastic exercises, under the direction of a competent teacher, are required of each pupil. This system is claimed to besuperior, highly conducive to health of body and vigor of mind. LaOrange Wemak Co EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS. There will bo monthly written examinations, and, at the end of each three months, a term examination, a report of which will be sent to parents or guardians. The ilnal class standing ol each pupil will be mainly determined by these term examlaa, tions. CLASS DISTINCTIONS. Ail members of the Senior Class whoso average standing is as high as luiwty will be permitted to road original essays at Com- mencement. The two members having the highest average dur- ing their college course may, at the discretion of tho Faculty, be appointed to deliver the Valedictory and Salutatory addresses at Commencement, provided they have been members of the insti- tution for at least Ave consecutive terms previous to graduation, Ib the Junior class, twelve young ladles having the highest class standing may be appointed to read original composition! during the commencement exercises. To contend for this dis- tinction, a young lady must have been a member of the class for that entire collegiate year. In the Sophomore class, as many as ten young ladies may be selected to read or recite extracts during the commencement ex- ercises. Theso appointments are made solely on the ground o! superior excellence in elocutionary reading, good deportment and attention to duty. These distinctions aro awarded according to the relatra standing of pupils for the time they are together in the same class ; but in every case they must begin tho year together, com plete every study, and pass all the required examinations. Proper consideration is given, where time, labor, and expense are required for extra studies. f&- All dueB must be settled before any distinctions, awardi. or diplomas are conferred. DEGREES. Young ladies, on completing the regular course and standing an approved examination, will be entitled to a diploma with tte degree of A. B. Those completing the scientific course in lite manner will be entitled to a diploma with the degree of B. 8. Young ladies who have graduated at this college, or at institt- tions of similar grade, may pursue a Post-Graduate course of study. After completing this advanced course and passiogi satisfactory examination, they may receive the degree of A. M. MEDALS. THE J. L. SCHAUB MEDAL. Mr. J. L. Schaub, of LaGrange, Oa., has endowed a medal for excellence In Art. THE DR. WILLIAM E. MURPHEY MEDALS. Dr. William E.Murphey, of LaGrange, a trustee of the col- lege, has endowed two prize medals for e .cellenco In elocution. These medals will be awarded during Commencement week to the two members or tho Sophomore class adjudged to be the most excellent in elocution. FACULTY MEDALS.

It will bo seen we have no inci- dentals, and make no extra charges for any studies tauslitln our curriculum. With our vastly increased facilities, we eon sider our rates cheap. They will compare favorably with those of any similar institution in the South. For terais of payment, see next page, under head of Stipulations. Upon application, special rates will be furnished to two or more pupils from the same family or community, entering college during the same term. •STIPULATIONS. Tbe CMh for Rooks. Stationery, Drawing- and Painting Mate- rials, for bearding pupils, must be deposited on entrance; and j D tlir MMM of day i>upils, must be paid as furnished. All the above charges for board and tuition are required to be paid or satisfactorily secured, one-third cash, one-third Decem- ber It, and one-third March 7. New pupils are char«ed from the beginning of the month In which they enter, except for board when the entrance is after the middle of the month ; but no pupil is admitted for a less time than to the end of tbe term. Former pupils, returning after the term has opened, are charged tuition for the whole term, if carried on with tbe same das'-. No refunding of money paid for board unless the absence of the pupil exceeds one month; none for tuition, unless actual serious illness demands the removal of the pupil. No charge for tuMon is made against the daughters of clergy- men liini'i iii/ tin' ministry. It will be seen from the above that wc furnish a thorough and complete collegiate education at lower rates than usual in insti- tutions of the same grade. Our facilities for teaching have been, and are being, increased. Our Faculty consists of highly edu- cated and ex petteMMl teachers, and, while we pay strict atten- tion to the ornamental branches, we have special regard for the accurate scholarship of our pupils, and their training for the" practical duties of life. General Information. LOCATION. LnOrange is located 71 miles Southwest of Atlanta, on the Atlanta & West Point R. It., above the Pine Mountain range, upon a high, rolling country, and is not liable to extremes of climate. It is noted for its beautiful gardens of flowers, its ele- gant homes, and the general culture of its citizens. Through their generous efforts In establishing schools and colleges of high grade. LaG range has long been famed as a chief center of education. LaOrangi Female College. SITUATION. The col lego occupies a most magnificent site, in full view o| mnjestie landscapes. The late Dr. Hears, agent of the Ft Flint), said of the situation, that lie had traveled extenairely in Europe ami America, visiting schools and colleges, but had never seen one equal to this for beauty and adaptation. THE OKOUNDN Are nine acres In extent, and, beautiful by nature, are diversi- fied with terracod groves and gardens. The young ladta in their shady walks and quiet retreats, healthful outdoor exercise and pleasant retirement. THE BUILDINGS. The main buildings are the College and College Home. The Collego is built of brick and stone and covered with tin, making it fire-proof. It is (.0x120 feet, two stories high, with towered front. The first floor is divided by wide balls, crossing each other at the center, thereby affording perfect ventilation. Upon it there are six rooms, devoted to recitation, laboratory, and museum. On the second floor is the chapel and a complete arrant-men: of Music, Art, Society, and Library rooms, admirably adapted to their uses, and convenient to the Chapel. THE COLLEGE CHAPEL. The Chapel is GOxlOO reet, with a capacity for 1,800 persons. It is beautifully lighted by large windows, and has four entrances It has been pronounced, by distinguished visitors, to beVt finest audience room in the South. THE COLLEGE HOME. The Home is conveniently near the College. It has jur 1 : br« repaired, painted, and rendered much more attractive. Itii two stories high, built of brick, with tin roof, and contains seven- teen rooms, eighteen feet square. Cross halls divide both floors. Each room has two or more large windows, two doors, andi transom over each door. The thickness of the walls of tbe building is a protection aguinst the extremes of heat and cold, and young ladies find their rooms comfortable in every season. TEN THOUSAND DOLLASB. The Trustees have just raited ton thousand dollars to enlarge the College Home. Waterworks, bath room.", and other ooave- ilenoea will be added. Thin nan addition will givo ns tmple ao- eommodntloni for one handred boarders. Oat College Some will now be 60] 160 f.-.'t, two stories high at one end and three at the other. The boarding department now contains thirty rooms for boarders, parlor, reading-room, kitchen, store-room, pantries, and a Dining Hall 60x60 teet These rooms will all be finished and furnished in modern style. Kaeh story of the building has a hall running the entire length, with two cross halls opening upon a double gallery in front. These halls af- ford ample ventilation and easy escape In ease of lire. The College building will also be much improved and orna- mented. New seatings. maps, charts, and other teaching facili- ties will be furnished. The grounds will be neatly enclosed and much beautified. THE OUTLOOK. Prospects for the coming session are cheering. The College is steadily increasing in numbers and prosperity. Under the present management, it began two years ago with about a half dozen boarders and half a hundred pupils. Its instruction and management have been endorsed, during the second year, by a local patronage of eighty-four pupils, representing every reli- gions denomination of the vicinity. Its increasing popularity abroad is attested by the fact that, beginning its first year with six boarding pupils, it ended its second with sixty-four. This phenomenal growth has forced upon the judgment of the trustees tbe necessity of enlarging the boarding department. As will be seen above, a large sum has been raised, work has com- menced, and ample room will be provided by opening of fall session. They further endorse the present administration by committing the college to their management for a period of twenty years. This trust, however, in no way impairs their official authority, Dor disturbs the relation of the college to the conference. ALUMNA. Tho Alumna.' of the College hold an annual meeting to revive the associations of the past and contribute, as far as possible, to the prosperity of the Alma Mater. APPARATUS. The Collet is supplied with a now and complete philo. sophical apparatus, manufactured by the celebrated boa Ritcbie St Bora, Boston. As an Invaluable ;iiii t<> the teaching 4 physiology, Yatrgy's Anatomical .Study has just been purchased at a considerable outlay. MUSLIM. The museum has been recently enlarged by a collect ion of rar> minerals obtained from the Geological Department ol the state of Georgia. Through the generosity of friends, valuable tions have been made (luring the past session. Further contri butions from friends are earnestly solicited, and will bu duly acknowledged. LITERARY SOCIETY AND LIBRARY. The Irenian Society is accomplishing much in the Collejn. Usually two societies exist in institutions of this class to encour- ago rivalry, but. unfortunately, this rivalry, particularly anion? girls, often generates bitterness, which wr hope to avoid by hav ing but one. The Society meets Friday afternoon, and the rca cises consist of reading*, narratives, recitations, essays, discus- sions, etc., in which all the members take part. By earnest efforts, the young ladies of the Society have com- pleted their hall and library room. The hall is in the college building, 90x34 feet ; library room, 1 Ix'io feet. These rooms fur- nish a perfect outfit for the purposes of the Society. It is ear- nestly hoped that all the friends of the Society will continue to contribute books; second-hand books, if they are solid, and proper for young ladies to read, are us valuable as new ones. STUDIES OF BOARDERS. Boarding pupils study in the afternoon, and two hours after tea under the care of a teacher. No desultory or aimless study Is allowed. This provision really doubles the advantages which boarding pupils possess over those who are not inmates of the house. Under such judicious regimen, pupils form habits ol earnest and intelligent application, and, as a rule, our boarders stand among the foremost of the school. LaOrange Emmie College, .57 HEADING AND SEWING CLUBS. The boarding pupils will ho organized iuto a Reading and a Sewing Club. TbftM Clubs will bo required to meet weekly In » short session, under the superintendence of sotuo members of the Faculty. N I . A TN BBS- ORDER-DRESS. Every effort is made to sccuro the utmost neatness and order on the part of the young ladies, in the arrangement and care of their rooms, clothing, MHl persons. The Matron inspects the rooms of boarding pupils daily, and notes all instances of disorder, negligence, or UDtiditioss. While no uniform dress is prescribed, every effort is made to secure such plainness and simplicity in the style of dressing as is consistent with sound economy and good taste. MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ADVANTAGES. We seek to give the most constant attention to the moral and religious training of our pupils. Religious services are held morning and evening. Pupils attend such churches and schools in the city on Sabbath morning as their parents may designate. Social religious meetings are held during the week. Riblo les- sons are part of the curriculum. Sectarianism is eschewed, but It is our aim to commend the Christian religion by precept and example. HEALTH AND PHYSICAL TRAINING. In no private household is there employed a closer or more intelligent supervision over the inmates than is here exercised over the health of the boarding pupils. The slightest ailments are promptly treated. In serious cases, the best medical advice is secured and competent nurses provided. Choiceof (hephgsi- and of the system nj treatment rests with the parent, m6, where made known to the President, is scrupulously respected. All the conditions of proper sanitation are carefully observed. Day pupils aro not allowed to expose their health. Little chil- dren are provided with play-room within doors during the in- clement winter weather. The regular drill in calisthenics, with dumb-bells, wands, and rings, and in free gymnastics, aids in promoting and maintaining sound health, muscular develop- ment, and graceful carriage. LaOrang€ !'■ ma • I ollege. DOMESTIC ARKA N( I KM ENT8. The sleeping apartments of the College are accommodated each to four Inmates. The heavy articles of furniture, such as bed- ' steads, washstands, tables, wardrobes, and chairs, are furnished I by the College. The boarders are expected to Turnish their own ! outfit for the room. Each one should furnish one pair of sheets, one pair of blankets or comforts, one coverlet or spread, one pair | of pillow-cases, one dozen towels. Each pupil should be trnj with a pair of rubbers, a waterproof, and an umbrella. Parents and guardians are requested to withhold from their \ daughters and wards the means of expensive dress. School en should be plain and simple. They should, as far as possH made at home. Ibo much tune and money ewe absorbed, if mak here. Members of the Junior and Senior classes, on Comrs ment occasions, will be required to wear plaim white dressi void of ornament. Young ladles boarding iu the Institution are not allowed to open accounts at stores, or contract any debts. All necessary shopping is attended to for tbem, either by some of the officers or their ladies. No request from parents to allow their daughters to do shopping for themselves, or for any one else, will be com- plied with. All purchases are made for cash, which must, for this purpose, be deposited with, some member ot the Faculty. Boarders are not allowed to keep money in their rooms, i at their own risk. The Faculty, their families, and the boarding pupils, all par- take at the same table, and constitute one large family, in which the supervision and care of the pupils devolve upon the Presi- dent, assisted by his associates. The harmonious and kindly feeling thus generated obviates the necessity of an excessively rigorous discipline. Confidence between pupils and teachers is invited and secured. THE GOVERNMENT Is mild but tirm. The pupil is taught to respect herself, and to maintain her self-respect and the respect of those around her, by observing the proprieties of life in all her conduct, and in her intercourse with her fellow-pupils and instructors The effect is first to establish good principles, and then govern her by teaching her to govern herself in accordance with those prin- ciples. Such an esprit de corps is thus secured as renders rigid discipline rarely necessary. hi'h-n,,,,, /■;■„. u SOCIAL PRIVILEGES.

WILLIAMS. •Acting tor Rev. A. W. Williams. fTrusteo Committeeman. APPENDIX. LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE HISTORY (Irenlnn Casket.) Wo propose to give tho readers of our bright Casket a brief history of our college, its wants, and prospects. The LaOrange Femalo College, founded In 1883, was. in its infancy, an academy of high grade, and its first teacher of note wao Rev. Thomas Stanley. In the year 1816, under the presi- dency of Mr. J. T. Montgomery, a charter was procured, and the academy became a college After several years of unprece- dented prosperity— often more than 200 girls being in attend- ance—the whole collego property was sold to the Georgia Annual Conference of the M. E. Church, South. The trustees elected a now corps of competent teachers, and, in September, 1857, the college began its distinctive work of Christian educa- tion under tho presidency of Rev. W. G. Conner, a member ot the Conference. It enjoyed patronage from all parts of this and adjoining states. Under the presidency of Rev. W. A. Harris, D. I> . in 1869, it took the lead of church schools in sending out the tlrst resident graduate class in the South, of which Miss Alien Coital Cobb, now a successful teacher in tho Wesleyan Female Col- lege, was an honored member. Well established in a career of enlarged and increasing usefulness, its work was arrested by a disastrous fire on the 2Sth of Ifftrcb, I860. The college property, consisting of a magnificent building, an ample chemical and philosophical apparatus, a complete equipment of costly musical instruments, large and well-selected libraries, was con- sumed. But such a great work as tho higher education of woman was not to be hindered -even by a calamity like this. The friends of the Col lege rallied with willing hearts and open purses to rebuild, and so'\j> the hammer of the carpenter was heard. The completion of the work was prevented by the war. Through the energy and perseverance of Rev. Jas. R. Mayson, late president, the building was put in condition to be used. In the midst of general depression and business prostration result j, ing from the war, he succeedod in raising $10,000 for tho work, principally from tho noble citizens of LaGrange. After several y»ars of prosperous labor, he resigned his position in order to return to the pastorate. The Trustees then elected Rev. John f Ileldt, J). I» , Pn -ddent. Inobodienco to tills call ho left the large* pastoral clmrgo in the North Georgia Con ference. With an energy and devotion, born of high purpose and strong conviction, he entered upon his duties The eduea tional facilities of the College are being multiplied, its currieu lum advanced, and its patronage enlarged. We are collecting libraries and would mo* earnestly call tho attention of our friends to tins Med. With this pressing want supplied the boarding department enlarged, and the grounds beautified ' this feUege will ho amply equipped for its grand work. These' facts make their own appeal to the friends of Christian education throughout the world. This college belongs to the church and any aid afforded will be for the advancement of the causo of Christ. Some of our sister colleges are tho objects of noble bene- factions from large hearted Christian patriots from various parts of the country. Would that some George I. Seney could seeour opportunity and want, that his generous soul might be moved toward us. No College can be found moro worthy. The climate of LaGraage is healthful and tree from tho extremes of heat aad oold; the air is pure and bracing. The College occupies a moet commanding site, surrounded by picturesque ludsoapee. All its conditions as an educational center are dual, II not superior, to any in the South, and it cannot fail to return large dividends on judicious investments in the future. LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE. (Frcrn tin' o, In mliui En.|Ulrcr-8un, Sep., IMS.) The LaGrange Femalo College is presided over by Iiufus W. Smith, A. M.. a teacher of long experienae and rare <juali tics. Mrs. Smith, whose quick, accurate knowledge of mathematics and easy manner of imparting information have achieved for her an extensive reputation, has charge of this department in the College. There is a full corps of teachers, and in every detail the College is well equipped. The graduates and former scholars of Trot. Smith are his best reference. A thorough gen- tleman, a pure man, and a disciplinarian and teacher of unusual if. he is worthy of the largo patronage he has received. « President and Mrs. Smith formerly had management of a nigh ichool in Middle Georgia. Bar. Walker Lewis, Mr. G. Gunby Jordan. Dr. Seth Jordan, and others probably in our community received their school education and early training there. For fears he has been President of Dalton Femalo (Jolloge. Parents i u I /.';/''. reeking a thorough school for their daughters fan find it io LaUrange. iH.iiilhrrn World, Oot.

By a singula fatality, after yean of usefulness, tbe buildings of this oolien wore swept away by fire. They have beeo restored, hi In far greater splendor than before. Tho main edifice ■ elegantly desiKneii, end strongly built of brick and stone. It i? no by ISO feet, two stories high at one end and three at the other. Tho maKnifieent chapel is worth seeing, and the com- modious boarding house, library, recitation rooms, society halls, etc., aro handsomely finished and well ventilated. Perched upon the apex of a lofty hill, and surrounded by ma- jestic trees, with the view bounded only by the distant horizon. it is without doubt one of the most imposing structures in the state. Tho late President, Dr. Jno. W. Heidt, having recentl) been transferred to a new field of fluty in Texas, RaftuW. Smith, A. M., has been invested with that responsible office, and brings with him from Dalton a reputation as an educator and disciplinarian unsurpassed in tbe state. He is a gentleman ol benignant manners and marked ability, and is assisted by hit excellent wife, Mrs. Oreon M. Smith, a thorough mathematician. Rev. P. A. Heard, A. M., and a large and competent corps ol Instructors. The college has opened well, and the course of study is exceedingly judicious and thorough. Indeed. LaGrange is justly entitled to be regarded as one of the most noted educa- tional centers of the South. (LaOrango Reporter, Oct. 10, ISM.] • We reprint from tho Wetleym Christian Advocate an article from tho pen of Dr. Weyman H. Potter, its gifted editor, con- cerning the outlook for the LaGrango Female College. It is a deserved tribute to a school which stands among tho first President Smith and wife are assisted by an able faculty-Pro- fessor Euler B. Smith, whose capacity and success have Riven him a high position among Southern educators; Mrs. Euler B. Smith, who is a brilliant lady and a teacher without a superior in her department; Miss Pond, the instrumental teacher, whose LaOrangi /■'• College. n past achievements are a guarantee that her work will always be efficiently done, and the accomplished Miss Withorsnoon, one of tbo first young ladies and most Rifted vocalists in the Bouth. With such a corps of instructors thero can be no failure. The College is enjoying great prosperity. The boarding houso is full ami the locai patronage excellent. COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES. (Extract from taOrangc Reporter, Juno 9, 1887.) Last night ( Wednesday) saw the close of the best commence- ment the college has known since the war, and that Is saying much. It is no relloction upon any of the former Presidents, faculties, or pupils to say this : it is only saying that there have been growth, development; that the college is not only In the van of loading oducational institutions, but that it has struck out on a "now departure" of its own, and has before it a career of great usefulness and prosi>erity. A great advance has been made by the college within even a twelvemonth. New methods bave been introduced and now inspirations breathed into its at- mosphere. The discipline is admirable and beautiful, the course thorough and comprehensive, blending the ideal and practical in harmonious proportions ; ibfl n atom of things have been de- veloped and the pupils taught to investigate and to think. It is impossible for a young lady to be superficial or indolent under the spurs and incentives to honorable eiertion which this insti- tution supplies. There was certainly not a listless exercise during the whole commencement. A larger attendance we have not seen sinco the ante-bellum days. Not only people from the country, but very many from a distance have been with us, not only pleased but delighted with what they have seen and heard. Miss Pond, the head of the department of instrumental music, is a Boston lady, whose splendid culture is equaled by her modesty and grace. The pieces executed on this occasion dem- onstrated yet more convincingly her superior talents* and care- ful trailing of her pupils. Mm Kincaid is certainly an artist of rare gifts and some of her pupils bid fair to achieve more than local distinction with the brush. They have done well-such was the verdict not only of the masses, but of critics and con- noisseurs. The crayon work was particularly commended. Some of the portraits were real masterpieces, while the palntlugs in oil were highly creditable. The Operetta was the most beauti- ful thing we ever saw on a stage. It would have done credit to 4" laQrange Female Cottage. artieaM of national fame. Miss Withorspoon rose to heigthB of song that we havo nevor heard surpassed. One of her selections was from "Ermlnie," which was on the boards in New York for three hundred consecutive nights. Our praise is not extrava- gant- it will meet the approval of the "sober secoad thought" of every appreciative auditor. (Newnan Horald ami Advertiser, Juno lo, 1887.) After twelve months of success, unprecedented tn the history of this worthy institution, a fitting close in tho shapo of the most brilliant commencement ever enjoyed by its patrons and friends has just passod. The unanimous verdict is that this commence- ment far surpassed anything evor before attempted by this pop- ular school. (Atlanta Constitution. June 11, 1887,) The commencement was a grand ovation from beginning to end. The uuiversal verdict is that it was tho best the college has over had. The management of this college, by President R. W. Smith, and his corps of assistants, has been signally success- ful. During the past year there have been one hundred and forty- six students in attendance. The college is thoroughly equipped in every department, and is an honor to LaOrango. It has a host of friends and patrons, many of whom wcro present to wit- ness its commencement. What they saw convinced them that this is a model school. LaOrange honors President Smith and his assistants for their noble work. PRESS EXCEBFTS. The Quartette, composed or Misses Luolla Pond and Pauline Witherspoon and Messrs. E. B. and A. M. Smith, furnish music that will challenge comparison with the best productions of pro- fessionals.' The audience was completely captivated by the first selection, as was manifested by a hearty encore, and each subse- quent appearance only intensified the delight of the auditors. Miss Pond as instrumentalist, and Miss Witherspoon as vocalist, are finished mrU tU t in their respective lines, and nono who heard them were disappointed. The Messrs. Smith are equally accomplished in vocal training and contributed equally as much to the pleasure and success of the entertaininent.--r<>i/rfrt a<1 vertiser.

The Summer Normal Institute, at Meridian, closed Wednes- day. The principal of this school, Professor E. B.

He is practical, thorough, and progressive in his meth- ods, untiring as a worker, and nover fails to enlist the Interest of the entire school in the exercises and discussions. Those who have attended tho institute have been greatly improved in their knowledge of tho subjects and methods of teaching, and teachers and the people havo been inspired with a deeper Inter- est than ever before existed in educational matters.— ^'' Newt.
